After working on this for about a month, I think I'm ready to go live!
ATTACHED IS A **NEW** CHEERS EVALUATOR SPREADSHEET
It is in Excel *.xls format
To help you determine if Cheers may be a good value for you:
Download the spreadsheet
Enter your Cruise Length (C1) and number of Sea Days (C2). NOTE: If you are cruising from Galveston or New York, enter one day less for Cruise Length. Cheers does not become active until your first full day; you are only charged for the remaining days. For example, for cruises 7 days in length, enter 6.
The Cheers! package price which is pre-loaded (C3) is the pre-cruise purchase price and includes the automatic 15% gratuity.
The only other items you need to enter are the desired number of each beverage for each sea and port day. Everything else calculates automatically. Keep an eye on the Worth It? box (F2-3) -- it will turn green if your anticipated consumption exceeds the cost of Cheers.
All drinks listed are included in the Cheers package.
I cannot claim the spreadsheet setup as my own. A user name Kelly Mohr originally created this spreadsheet for Princess. I have simply updated it for Carnival. MUCH THANKS to user Carol Jones for providing recent bar menus!
The major change from Kelly's organization scheme is that I have grouped drinks available by bar. If you're like me, you know where you're likely to hang out and want to know what's offered there.
Prices and selection given are for Carnival Vista. You can assume price/selection will be pretty consistent across the fleet.
I have tried to use the most up-to-date information available. If I know the date of the menu from which the prices/selection were taken, it is listed by the venue name. For those without a date, I have cross-referenced from recent menus to try to provide the most up-to-date guess.
**If you have information to update this tool, please post it here! I'll be happy to provide updates as long as I can.**
